Expanding their reach across more of the market, AMD today announced the Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT as well as the the AMD B550 chipset availability and the new A520 chipset.
These newer XT branded chips are aimed at the enthusiast market, to give what AMD say is "elite-level performance that dominates gaming and content creation" using further optimizations to their 7nm manufacturing process. This update to 7nm, AMD say, gives an AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT around a 4% increase in single-threaded performance over previous AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop processors.
From the press release:
"At AMD, we are committed to listening closely to our customers and the enthusiast community to deliver leadership products," said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit. "With AMD Ryzen 3000XT processors, we’re making additional optimizations to the 7nm manufacturing process to deliver industry leading single-thread performance and more choice and flexibility for enthusiasts."

On the subject of cooling, AMD say the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT comes with a Wraith Spire cooler but the other two AMD suggest looking elsewhere for better cooling "with a minimum 280mm radiator or equivalent air cooling".
Today we also see the worldwide availability of the AMD B550 chipset, the first to support PCIe 4.0. AMD also announced the new A520 chipset, aimed at "everyday PC users".
